Time was fast running out on our Easter break, but the sun was shining and it was almost warm (much, much warmer than it has been today here in June-uary anyway).
Since my last visit to Foulshaw Moss the new boardwalks had been completed and the track I walked along last time is now under what looks to be quite deep water….
Indeed, the last small section of boardwalk before the raised viewing platform is floating on barrels and wobbles quite thrillingly as you cross.
TBH and A saw several lizards and there were quite a few butterflies about. B also spotted a Marsh Harrier. But the reason I’d suggested calling in at Foulshaw was on the off chance that the Ospreys which successfully nested here last year might have returned. They had, arriving just the day before I think.
“I saw them, I saw them – two white blobs!”
I had to check his expression to see whether S was being sarcastic, but he was bouncing about with excitement so I guess not.
